Deteriorating Highway 92 sound wall to be replaced with state funds 

A tipping sound wall on state Highway 92 that was damaged by heavy rains four years ago will finally get a permanent fix.

Caltrans is planning to start work this summer on replacing the 78-foot section of wall, located on the westbound side of Highway 92 near Mariners Island Boulevard, after the California Transportation Commission allocated $153,000 to the project last month.

The wall, which is leaning and has a damaged foundation, doesn’t pose an immediate risk to public safety, but Caltrans wants to fix it before it falls down, spokesman Bob Haus said.

“We’re going to put in a stronger foundation that should be able to stand up to weather damage,” he said.

The project was the only one on the Peninsula that got some of the $101 million in the commission’s most recent round of funding.  

The wall is very close to homes near the highway, so crews are “going to have to exercise a lot of care and consideration” during the work, Haus said.
